- Always apply creams, make-up, perfume etc before you put on your jewellery. The oils and acids in cosmetics and colognes can damage precious metals, gemstones and pearls. Let the lotions and scent soak into your skin before donning your favourite pieces.
- Jewellery Trees and stands are a pretty way to display your favourite pieces, but they are not always your best friend. I'm very wary of hanging beaded necklaces and bracelets for long periods of time as the stringing materials (tigertail, nylon string, hemp, elastic etc) can stretch or sag, especially if the stones or beads are a little heavy. Best to store flat.
- Many gemstones hate heat, so storing in a fairly cool place is best. Heat may damage the stone or affect the colour, especially if highly coloured or enhanced.
